Description Mike Christie 2012-04-17 16:32:19 EDT
Description of problem:

In the upstream kernel the queuecommand callout is called with no locks held. In RHEL 6 libiscsi is still using the old style locking so the queuecomand function is called with the host lock held and irqs disabled.

So in RHEL 6 when beiscsi_alloc_pdu is called and and spin_unlock_bh is used it will cause errors.

There is not need to use the bh locking in beiscsi_alloc_pdu because libiscsi will always do the right thing.
